Hi there,
It sounds to me like you are having an engine speed sensor related fault, most probably crank position sensor rather than cam sensor, if it is the engine i think you will have in that vehicle they are both part of the distributor and you cannot buy components for them, it will be an exchange unit or send away for repair. If you would like to contact me further to give me any other details on your vehicle or advice you can call me on 07743 215898
